Drop Leaf Dining Table

We recently moved and were unable to take our large table with us. We wanted something that was small, yet expandable, and didn’t require storing table leaves. The table is 3’x3’ and expands to 6’ long when we have guests. We found some quality unfinished chairs and stained them to match.

This was my first table build and first time using distressed finish techniques. Having family meals at a card table while working on this project was a great motivation to get it done.

  • That looks amazing, great work.
    Really like the drop leaves, not storage leaves is a huge benefit
